Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Clifton Cod. The fish and chip shop was originally established in the 1980’s. This has been highly popular on the estate as there is little competition around.
Our client took over the store in 2014 but is now looking to sell the business due to health issues. Our client runs the business as a traditional fish and chip shop. The chippy offers a great menu with foods such as, pies, burgers, sausage, fish and homemade chicken curry.
The business is currently generating a turnover of around £42,000 with a gross profit of 71%. This is a healthy turnover however we feel this could be increased in many ways. One way to do this would be to increase the menu, by introducing foods such as kebabs and pizza’s there should be an increase in custom and therefore more food orders.
The chippy is currently closed on weekends and closes at 7pm weeknights. The new owner should look at opening later hours to boost sales. Deliveries would also be a great way of generating an extra income.
The business thrives from its location, being in the heart of a housing estate benefits the trade. Our client sees a generous amount of repeat loyal trade.
This is a brilliant opportunity for any purchaser looking for a successful fish and chip shop. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid missing out on this great business.
